i love the dexter novels and am also an avid fan of the showtime series, and being such a large fan and also loving cannibals, i figured how could this go wrong? well, sorry to have to say it, but this book started out terribly whiny...became awkward, and finally ended in some sort of scooby doo mishap. i will not give away any plot points or the ending if you feel you must see how bad this is for yourself, but i suggest you save your credits and cold hard cash for something more enjoyable. this thoroughly disappointed me and i dont know if ill bother to read another dexter novel in the future. what a ripoff.
First, I would like to say I can't understand the bad reviews regarding Jeff Lindsey as the narrator. I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance. Second, someone please tell me Rita dies in the books and hopefully soon. I want to kill the sniveling little twit myself. That is all.
I Didn't struggle to finish...stopped listeni,g 40 minutes in. Jeff...leave the reading to someone else.
I'm more of a fan of dark dexter than I am of the family man dexter but this book had me Captivated and wondering what going to happen next!
Still fun but without the cleverness of the previous book. He's not as careful, cunning or confident as I remember. And lastly end up having to rely on others to save him rather than the other way round. If Dexter can't be clever at least let him go out in a blasé of glory.
While pretty predictable and not all that exciting, this is at least a TON better than the previous book in the series. I'd even call it worthwhile.
The main antagonist in this story is probably the most disturbing yet. The book takes a while to get off the ground, but once it gets going, it's a hell of a ride. I didn't really care for Dexter's new, happier outlook in this book, but the character is evolving as any good character should. Jeff Lindsay does his usual, superb job of voicing the serial killer hunting serial killer. And a surprise guest made things very interesting. All in all, a fun roller coaster ride with the dark, dapper Dexter.
If you love the show you will love the Book.
I felt that it was more of the show.
His reading put me to sleep. I love the story but had a hard time staying awake. His voice put you in this places that you could relax.
Life of DEXTER
Jeff Lindsay brings his characters alive with his excellent narration. Dexter has a dry wit and a honest voice. I'll listen again sometime.
